Register Intent to Buy

Registering your Intent to Buy lets HDB assess your eligibility to purchase an HDB resale flat. There is no fee involved for registering, and you will receive an instant assessment on your eligibility to buy an HDB resale flat, the housing grants you are eligible for, and your eligibility for an HDB housing loan.

Important Notes:

  • Your Intent to Buy is valid for 12 months. You will need to reapply an Intent to Buy if you do not submit your resale application within 12 months.
  • The results generated from the Intent to Buy is based on information you have provided. It is only an indication of your eligibility, and does not constitute an approval by HDB to apply for a resale flat or to take up an HDB housing loan or housing grant.
  • You need to ensure that you provide the correct details when registering your intent. Your resale application will be rejected if the details submitted are different from that indicated in your Intent to Buy.

What happens after registering an Intent to Buy?

After registering your Intent to Buy, you will be guided to apply for an HDB Loan Eligibility (HLE) letter, if you are eligible for and intend to get a housing loan from HDB. You must have a valid HDB Loan Eligibility letter when the sellers grant you the OTP.

If you do not require a housing loan from HDB or intend to get a housing loan from a financial institution (FI), you may proceed to look for a suitable flat within your budget and obtain an OTP from the sellers. If you intend to get a housing loan from a financial institution (FI), you must have a valid Letter of Offer (LO) before you exercise the OTP.
